Animal feed production usually relies on rectangular sieves or sifters for separating product particles.
However, we can observe that increasing product performance requirements are frequently pointing at obtaining finer sieving results.
That is why we have been recently required to carry out sieving tests with two different powder products to be used for animal feed production.
The aim of the test was:
- to safety sieve ingredient No. 1 (a cereal-based flour) to intercept lumps or coarse particles
- to classify ingredient No. 2 (a fat product tending to create lumps) in three different products
In this video, you can check how circular sieves represent the perfect solution to be applied if you are looking to improve quality through particle size separation.
